Hey Weatherperson, What’s the Forecast?

What are all those symbols on the weather reporter's map? What is in store for the weather during a low pressure system? Through a comprehensive multi-day instructional activity, kids do several activities to help them understand more about the weather and how it is forecast. From online games, to researching the weather in a certain part of the world, to reporting out to the class about it, young meteorologists will begin to understand larger patterns in weather and why different areas of the world have such diverse weather.
